as an assistant united states attorney here in the northern district of california where ironically handled domestic violence case in the presidio which isn't the typical jurisdiction matter but more importantly i'm a husband and a father of a daughter and this is important and in light of the current events that have taken place it's important that the two commissions get together to affirm our commitment to combating domestic violence and protecting witnesses and candidly this couldn't be a better time. today i received the san francisco attorney, the magazine from the bar association, and the cover of the magazine is "domestic violence, not a cookie cutter approach" and they interviewed two attorneys and i know both but no prosecution interviewed, no police department involved in the interview, and it's essentially taking us back 10 steps. all of the hard work put in by the da's office and this article i was bothered by it and i think there should be response to the article and i think tonight is the first response and i think we are disturbed and it's like the knob hill gazette for l

to attribute that to a joint effort by the scu unit as well as the district attorney's office. the first point of real contact that dv victims have are the inspectors and svu. once inspectors make the initial contact that is where the trust begins. once that trust is established it is turned over to our office where our attorneys try to maintain that trust. honestly, with a number of attorneys that we have it is very difficult to maintain that. as we know it is not just the perpetrators who continue to have power and control over the victims but there are families and relatives out there for the defendants who also apply a lot of pressure on the victims. i think that one of the most crucial points in prosecuting dv cases is when the victim begins to turn away from us, the prosecution. i honestly believe t we need more resources because at that point in time it is not a matter of us letting these cases go. i think we have defined other means to be able to pursue these cases even when victims don't always cooperate or even when they don't come in to testify i have to believe that

. happening right now, an emotional and very historic day on capitol hill. a brand new united states congress is sworn in and with it a new hope for reaching across the aisle. >>> some of the cases may be knew, but many of the tough issues that have to be tackled certainly haven't changed. so is is there any real chance of getting anything done? >>> and nearly three weeks since the devastating massacre, sandy hook elementary students return to school. we'll go there for a live report. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> an extra ordinary nar day here in washington. the 113th congress takes office ushering in, in a moment, what appeared to be a renewed push for bipartisanship on the heels of what has been an extremely tumultuous week of gridlock. one of the most striking moments of the day is this, a very emotional house speaker john boehner taking the gavel after being voted in by his colleagues to another term. >> put simply, worse than not to be something but to do something.
